The Joint Science and Technology Steering Committee with India took place on 12 February 2021. The meeting was opened by Director-General Jean-Eric Paquet who recalled that India is a key strategic partner for the EU with growing economic and geopolitical significance. The increasing political importance attached to India, means also more opportunities in research and innovation to underpin the policy objectives, going from green growth to digitalisation in a human centric way, resilient health systems and connectivity through more people-to-people exchanges. In all this, the innovation dimension plays an important role.
